Bourbon Biscuits - Homemade Heaven

Countdown Begins ~ Count 23

...Bourbon Biscuits spells out the
Chocolate
the
Celebration
The two rectangular pieces of chocolate brown biscuits. The chocolate filling, the middle layer is like the glue that holds the two rectangular pieces of biscuits together. Colour wise, the biscuits are slightly lighter and the filling slightly darker. Each biscuit with ten holes arranged in five pairs on outer surface breathing. The biscuits has little sugar crystals sprinkled on the upper surface which counts as extras.  Yes! It is the deliciously darling the best the Bourbon Biscuit.


Bourbon Biscuit

I'm too fond of only chocolate bourbon biscuit, – though I'm  not sure why, exactly. Perhaps, maybe it has to do something with my body sugar that rushes whenever I eat Bourbon biscuit. Making me feel rejuvenated in a micro second. Indeed its like having a Heaven in my mouth with every little Bites of Bourbon Biscuits..Yummm...!
I have been a strict regular bourbon biscuit eater ever since my childhood. "Perhaps perfectly proven possible way to eat Bourbon Biscuits in the deconstruction list manner that is consuming the separated layers of the biscuits and digging all the fillings inside it."

During my childhood, knowing my fondness for the bourbon, my dear Paa used to bring a whole big tin of bourbon biscuits. My mom used to ask me to eat three biscuits each day as she knew it is simply impossible to stop eating bourbon ones you start. I obeyed the instructions but as always with some changes in the rules. I for sure ate three biscuits as per instructions but at least four times a day. And even this is not just enough for me. I still follow the same rule for the bourbon. Ones the bourbon packet is open it has to be finished..!

But I’m more excited as I recently made my very own favorite bourbon biscuits at home. Except the process of baking, which takes less than 15minutes this one is an easiest sweet stuff to make. My homemade bourbon biscuits taste likes the ones from the shop. I’m sure you will enjoy making and eating it. .
